"But if I let these dreams die If I lay down all my wounded pride If I let these dreams die Will I find that letting go lets me come alive
So empty my hands Fill up my heart Capture my mind with You Oh empty my hands Fill up my heart Capture my mind with You With You, with You Lord”
Let go of that desire to always have that control over your own life and let God move, mold, use, teach, love, bless and guide you. Let him fill you up and capture you, every part of you. Your life might be full of burdens and doubts, but let him empty your hands and take care of it for you.
"The past is the past, so don’t let it last Once it has happened, let go of it fast Sometimes you can learn, from the mistakes you made But if you let it stay, then it’ll never fade It’s self inflicting, you’re only hurting yourself So let it go and leave it on the shelf"
So we just got a PS3 and we get free netflix now :] (until it mysteriously stops) Black Friday is tmmrw and i want some bball shoes. hopefully i can get them tmmrw and keep them for a long time. i need to write my essay.. so bad :’[ hopefully this small break from school will be a relaxing but efficient one.
this thanksgiving has been very unexciting, probably because our family already met up for thanksgiving dinner. I just sat around playing PS3 and watching movies and football. I feel like i’m not in the mood for this holiday because i’m not doing anything and everyone is going crazy on facebook and texting each other about thanksgiving and i’m not. everyone is talking about what they are thankful for and the food and football and it’s not like i’m not thankful for anything so for motivation I’m turning to…. the Bible!
1st Thessalonians 5:18 - give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
It’s good to have a day where we are reminded of the things that we should be thankful for, family and friends, shelter and education. However, we shouldn’t give thanks only on Thanksgiving just because that’s what you’re supposed to do, but we should give thanks everyday, no matter what you are going through. life sucks?? ehhh.. at least you’re not outside in the cold without food, family and friends. be thankful and grateful to God during those days when you are stressed out by life. life is good?? then you have many more reasons to worship God and give him thanks for everything that he provides for you in your life.
lately i’ve been telling myself not to think about things too much. I might worry or fret about someone or something, but now, I tell myself that it’s no big deal and that worrying about it doesn’t make it any better. It sure does make life a little easier.
Matthew 6:34 -Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Don’t worry about the things that you can’t control.
Be humble, be joyful, pray continually, always be thankful, love others, have faith, take risks, sacrifice, rejoice, do not be anxious about anything, forgive, be patient. I know there’s more to it, but this is all I could come up with so far.
"I speak in many tongues of many men Argue with angels and I always win But I don’t know the first thing about love
I prophesize and know all mystery All living things are opened up to me But I don’t know the first thing about love Don’t know the first thing about love
I have the keys to open any door Give all my possessions to the poor But I don’t know the first thing about love
And moving mountains ain’t a thing to me Have faith enough to cast them to the sea But I don’t know the first thing about love I don’t know the first thing about love
All other things shall fade away Love stands alone and still holds sway All other things shall fade away Into the ground into the grave
I give my body up into the flames And never once have I denied your name But I don’t know the first thing about love I don’t know the first thing about love ”
If I don’t have love in all that I do, then I am useless. There are many times when I don’t want to love, I go through the motions hoping that what I just did was good enough. It isn’t however, and I’m just wasting time, energy and etc, doing things without love. Because love lasts forever and never fades away. In the end, its all about love.
"It’s been so long since I have met You here Since I have said these words or cried these tears And like a child would come I run into our secret place And as the music fades, the tears are rolling down my face”
it’s a mess right now, all tangled up and twisted, but when organized and put in its place, it’ll be efficient and run without any trouble. Now, where to begin? But remember, you can’t do this by yourself.
I think that I have finally begun to enjoy keeping things to myself, things that i have learned, found out or done that have made me happy. I’m starting to enjoy having that piece of information to myself and myself only. I should try it out more.
"If you have nothing good to say about someone, then don’t say anything at all."
"Life is a bitch but she’s totally doable She’ll knock you around and she’ll lend you a hand Life is a bitch but she’s totally, totally doable She may be a beauty but life, life is a bitch
Bye bye symphony, you were the soundtrack to my life Bye bye symphony, there are no sad songs left to write Bye bye symphony, the tears have wept down gone and dried Bye bye symphony, the court you’ve paid have finally died”
